With the encouraging tones of cherished friends, lifestyle bloggers Michaels (The Inspired Room) and Wood (The DIY Style Finder) offer empathetic advice on creating a beautiful home in this practical offering. Alternating chapters, the authors empower readers with lessons on topics that include mixing multiple decorating themes, having fun with wall designs, indulging creative design without clashing elements (hints: embrace the rule of threes, pay attention to scale, and make room for white space), creating a “beachy, coastal vibe” even if one is inland, and balancing “sentiment and style.” (“The heart of the home is the people who live in it, so preserving memories and telling stories matters more than any design trend,” Michaels counsels.) The savvy authors are also cognizant that the great majority of readers are not dealing with unlimited budgets and suggest ways to make large impressions with a small amount of money. Design-loving readers will want to add this stylish tome to their permanent libraries. (Sept.)
